TAP and intercoolers
Had a fun conversation with a salesman from TAP today, thought the list
members might get a kick out the following verbage.
Me: I'm calling about an intercooler for an 89 200tqw. . .
TAP: Yeah, $795.
Me: Who is the manufacture?
TAP: I'm not sure. . .I think a company in England, probably Dialynx, its
a real nice unit, all-alum.
Me: Any bigger than stock?
TAP: No, but it has a 50% increase in flow.
Me: How do they achieve the increased flow and still remain the same size.
TAP: Well. . ., it has more fins.
Me: But how do they have more fins but remain the same size?
TAP: Well. . ., it fits in the stock mounting location.
Me: (sat speechless trying to figure what this had to do with anything)
TAP: The real nice thing about it is that there is no plastic to the unit,
it's all one-piece.
Me: Do you have any charts showing the increase flow?
TAP: Uh, no.
Me: Thanks, click
Gee, sure would be nice to have some actual numbers to go along with the
(it's all one-piece) brag when your looking at spending close to a G on a
used pop-can. Somehow I think I could increase the flow just be cleaning
the one on the car. Therefore, I am willing to sell anyone on the list an
"Increased flow" intercooler from my car for . . . . . .(hmmmmm) $500, yeah
that seem fair. Just don't ask me for a flow chart to prove it. :)
